Fault on ‘The Flames’

There appears to be a major issue of dropouts on track one of ‘DS418f – The Flames’. I am working on  a corrected version and will email all those affected once it’s done.

New torrents have now been sent out. I do apologize for this.

    Thanks for clearing this one up OD, so glad to have a version of this without the dropouts.

    Cheers Gents. I’ll try to another brand of Dvd disc or maybe a dvd-rw. I use dvd AE as I put the 4 tracks into a 5.1 file for WMA use on HTPC. Sometimes i add a subtle bass track to the 5.1 layout for the sub woofer to have something. Worked great on Beach Boys Sunflower. I get the bass from filtering out the mids and highs using Sony Soundforge, then a plug in to add some bass according to the type of material.

    As Alice said “Curioser and curiouser”… played disc through PowerDVD 13 and getting full length tracks but noticed drop outs on track 1 still. On DVD AE it is still extracting only first bits of each track.

      Is anybody else having these problems?

        I’ve blown the disc. I haven’t had time to play it yet. Will put it on now during dinner.

        Playing DVD-A layer on Oppo 95. All tracks appear to be the correct length on v2 (I never tried v1). Skipping through every track produces a sensible result, track time in player is 0 and musically starts a new track.

        Playing the disc through gives one dropout. Track 6 drops out at 01:30 and the play time jumps to 01:44 and the music restarts.

        OK, have just played the whole album and noticed no dropouts or other problems. Am a little confused at where the problem could be.

        My dropout in track 6 is repeatable. I suppose it’s possible the disc failed to burn correctly, but it would be a huge coincidence if it happened on a release others are having trouble with. Plus it passed a Verify after burning (I always verify).

          The problem is i can’t reproduce it, and it’s interesting that SACDtoDVDA didn’t mention an issue. Weirder and Weirder.

        • Owen Smith September 14, 2014 at 11:13 #

          I’ll verify the disc again, and maybe burn another one to DVD-RW as a test.

        • Owen Smith September 14, 2014 at 20:04 #

          The DVD+R I originally burned verifies OK in ImgBurn, despite track 6 drop out. A new DVD-RW I burned in ImgBurn plays track 6 fine with no drop outs. Looks like I have a disc fault that my laptop can read through but my Oppo can’t. Very odd it happened on the same release someone else is having trouble with. But it looks like the .iso file itself is fine.

            Phew, that’s good, thanks for letting us know

    Burnt 2nd DVD showing disc size as 1,41 gb. Using DVD Audio Extractor to pull 4 channels out as WAV files. Most tracks about 20 seconds in and 1st track about 40 seconds in. Gone back to another release to see if DVD AE is having problems – but pulling tracks out OK. Tried Live and Let Die release – all fine on that release. From snippets I hears a great sounding band though!

    Just re-burning DVD from image. Most tracks seem truncated lasting less than a minute, Will report back once 2nd DVD re-tried, Ta.
